A group of dedicated American School Hong Kong (ASHK) students and staff were inspired by Terry Fox’s heroic run across Canada and his enduring legacy of finding a cure for cancer. A proposal was made to bring the Terry Fox Run to our campus and to raise funds for cancer research projects.
On November 25, 2021, the ASHK community united together to host the First Annual ASHK Terry Fox Run! The enthusiastic participation of everyone in the school community created a very special atmosphere. At a time when COVID restrictions have removed some of the steam from normal school functioning, this event was the perfect antidote to boost morale and raise our spirits! The Run also reinforced our commitment to service projects and demonstrated how ASHK extends its warmth beyond the school grounds to reach the greater community.
At ASHK, we are proud of the effort made by all stakeholders who are dedicated to maintaining the strong sense of community we enjoy. We also remain dedicated to an aspect of our mission which is to empower students to reach their full potential and become engaged global citizens. The Terry Fox Run was truly a successful event in this regard and a powerfully positive experience that the school will adopt as an annual tradition!
